Happy Birthday Grandma!!

She turned 90 today.

I haven't had much time on the computer (I've got a few things to post about) because I've spent the week preparing for her birthday party.
We had a great turn out. It was hard to get a firm count with everyone milling around, but there were more than 80 here today.  We had reasonably decent weather (just a bit on the cool side, but several loaned heaters helped that), for which I'm thankful, because we had to hold it outside. We cleared out the garage and set up several tents. Between cousins and uncles we got ahold of 11 tables and more than seventy chairs. The four tables we had set aside for food were quickly overrun. We had to resort to using the freezer for all the soft drinks, the 3 gallon dispenser for tea and both of the very large coffee percolators, and we also had to tape folding tray tables together for the breads and for extra room on the dessert table, but we managed and everyone had a great time.
Most importantly, Grandma had a blast. She got to visit with people she hasn't seen in ages, and in all likelihood, will not get a chance to see again.
We are all thankful to our Lord for this chance to spend time with our friends and family to honor the birth of our Mother, Grandmother, Great-grandmother, Great-great-grandmother, Sister, Cousin, Aunt, and Friend.
